Leaflet on assaults
The INTO has launched a new leaflet for members on workplace assaults. (available below). It has been developed on an all-island basis, by a small working group made up of two practicing teachers, Rosena Jordan, INTO ex-president and Caroline McCarthy, INTO Northern Committee, along with INTO officials: Deirdre O’Connor, INTO Assistant General Secretary and Tommy McGlone, Senior Official in Northern Office.
The leaflet gives advice and guidance to schools in seeking to prevent assaults, and emphasises that assault is an issue for schools as employers, not just a personal issue for a teacher. It also gives practical advice on what to do if an assault occurs.
